(Newser) – The Colt revolver that killed John Dillinger is being auctioned next month in Chicago, reports the Sun-Times. Gangster aficionados should be ready to fork over between $8,000 and $12,000 for the gun fired by Indiana cop Timothy A. O'Neil in front of a Chicago theater 75 years ago. Meanwhile, the new Johnny Depp flick about the outlaw, Public Enemies, premieres tonight in Chicago ahead of its wider opening on July 1.
